We protect the environment
The company operates and maintains since 2012 two thermosolar plants of 49.9 megawatts at the rated power hour each. Both were designed and built by FCC Industrial, and constitute a milestone that reflects the contribution of the company to sustainability and energy efficiency. Between both plants they supply more than 30,000 families, which translates into a population of 70,000 inhabitants.
In the Guzmán thermosolar plant, sustainable practices have been implemented, delving into the environmental policy implemented at FCC Industrial. In the evaporation pond, nesting points were created for species such as "Ciconia nigra" and "Phoenicopterus". Access and exit accesses for birds were also created. All these measures have made possible the growth of the local populations of black storks and flamingos.

Proof of this, the company obtained, in its work CPD Murcia, one of the highest LEED scores in Spain and Latin America. In addition, in the last months it has been possible to certify the integral rehabilitation of the buildings of Paseo Castellana 278-280 (Madrid) with the gold category.
